5-Ingredient Vegetable Fried Brown Rice

Vegetable Fried Brown Rice - a quick and healthy side dish for any night of the week.

If there is one thing I’m learning it’s that I will always thank myself on Tuesday night for cooking up a batch of brown rice Sunday. Food prep like cooking grains, baked potatoes and even shredded chicken in the slow cooker ALWAYS saves me during the school week. If I know this, then why oh why don’t I do it every single week.

When I find myself unsure of what I want to make for dinner (not to mention, short on time), it’s always incredibly helpful to have a few staples already cooked up and waiting in the fridge. Brown rice is one of those staples and make this super quick and easy Vegetable Fried Brown Rice possible even on the busiest of nights.

You can make this fried rice even better by throwing in any leftover protein you may have (steak, chicken, shrimp) to bulk it up or if you are in the mood for something light it’s great as is. My family loves Asian food and I try to make a stir fry at least once a week. This veggie fried rice is the perfect addition to stir fry night.
